I changed the gasket and installed Hughes plate. Mine isn't as bad as it was when i bought it though.

I don't know if will work for you

An old trick to find a vacuum leak is to start your vehicle & let it idle, then lightly spray some WD-40 in short squirts, around any place that may be sucking air, when it finds the leak, it will either rev the motor or make it sputter

Personally i think that i would try some SEA FOAM Treatment in the throttle body & the gas tank only

It could also be something wrong with the Drive by wire system
charcoal canister
gas cap, check it first, a bad gasket will do strange things
throttle position sensor
etc.

Good Luck
